Bill Hall agrees to deal with Yankees

The Yankees have agreed to a minor league contract with

utilityman Bill Hall and invited him to big league spring

training.

Hall announced the deal on his Twitter account Tuesday, and New

York confirmed the agreement.

If Hall is added to the Yankees’ 40-man roster, he would get a

$600,000, one-year contract and have the chance to earn an

additional $600,000 in performance bonuses.

The 32-year-old played with Houston and San Francisco last

season before he was designated for assignment on July 28, batting

a combined .211 with 14 RBIs and two homers. He finished the season

at Triple-A Fresno.

In 10 big league seasons with five teams, Hall is hitting .248

with 124 homers and 439 RBIs. He hit 35 homers for Milwaukee in

2006.
